John Whittet was for manv years one of the leading men of Jefferson county. His long and honorable serv ice on the county board of supervisors was of great service to the people of this county. The town of Sumner, for a long period of years, elected him as its chairman every year without effort on his part because they had faith in the wise judgment of public affairs and sterling integrity of the man. Many of our county buildings bore his watch ful supervision and no suspicion of graft was ever attached to anything that John Whittet had in charge. Born of sturdy Scotch parentage, trained at his mother’s knee never to betray a public or private trust, this eminently good citizen has lived his life and passed to his last reward in close con tact with the people of this town and city. The meed of high respect has always been his. As these good old men depart, we wonder if the men who follow them, who fill the same places of public trust, will hold the same ideals of faithfulness to those who trust them, of helpfulness to those who weary and are in want. The old time men lived their younger days when good neighborship fashioned their ideas of men and so all through their lives they held to the spirit of long ago. Of this order of men was John Whittet. Peace to his ashes. To the faithful wife who nursed and comforted him in his old age, the highest regard is ac corded. Farmer Boy Kills a Wolf.

This family of wolves has been known to exist in a patch of woods in the township of Sumner for a number of years, but until this season they have not troubled the farmers much. Now, however, they have been attacking stock and generally becoming bolder, The result was that the farmers have in stituted a systematic campaign against them. It is also a profitable business, the bounty being in this state and county as high as S2O for a single skm.
